Mr. Blue

Mr. Blue

While learning the local customs of the Barbaric Tribe of Santa Barbaria, I was lucky enough to direct, film and edit a quick cover video of one Kensi Hardin covering the Fleetwood’s “Mr. Blue”.  On a unplanned, spur of the moment whim Brian Barnicle and myself took a few hours to shoot and a few [...]

A month after breaking my ankle on a multi day hike around the Sierras up to Mount Whitney, I decided it would be a good idea to take on my first ever paid climbing gig.  I took on the usual ‘Shepherd 10 minute rule’, figuring how bad could the hike there be?  Its only 10 [...]

 

Yar, the Captain

Yar, the Captain

I might have had the best trip to Yosemite ever right after my Turkey Day Birthday ( every seven years my birthday IS Thanksgiving day ) and boy was I thankful.  Not only were we blessed with a strange late November week of warm weather but thanks to the illustrious Jarad Styles, I got to [...]
